Arsene Wenger was given some good news on Monday regarding his attempt to sign Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco this summer.

The Arsenal manager witnessed his side bring home another piece of silverware on Sunday after defeating Chelsea emphatically in a penalty shoot-out.

Wenger is now expected to continue his pursuit of highly-rated Monaco star Thomas Lemar with less than a month left in the summer transfer window.

The Ligue 1 champions have already turned down at least three offers from the Gunners for the 21-year-old so far.

Monaco were believed to be delaying the sale of Lemar due to an ongoing search for a replacement but they have now found one.

The French club officially announced on Monday that winger Rachid Ghezzal has signed for club, effectively opening the door for the possible exit of Arsenal target Lemar.
